One of India’s foremost couturiers, Suneet Varma is a name that immortalises glamour and timeless style. After getting his degree from Europe in 1986, he went on to work with renowned couturier Yves Saint Laurent in Paris. Meticulous craftsmanship, a strong design sensibility and undying love for sartorial research, the Varma brand exudes fantasy, sexy sophistication and unadulterated femininity for the woman of today.
Varma presented 52 pieces, including lehengas, sarees as well as contemporary wears with beadwork, Swarovski crystals, mirror work and intricate hand embroidery. He has used Indian silhouettes, traditional motifs and applique on a wide range of fabrics like satin, silk, net and georgette.
“For me everything should come from the heart. It cannot be about the colour of the season or what would sell, and is commercial. It will sell regardless. I have to be happy with what I do,”Suneet Varma
Associations with some of the strongest international brands make Varma a designer whose forte goes beyond a uni-dimensional profile. He has collaborated with brands BMW, Judith Leiber, Azva by World Gold Council, Moet Chandon, Arttdinox by Jindal Steel, Faces by the Sartorialist, Discolour jewels and Swarovski.
Ivory, beige and icy pink dominated the ensemble. Dark shades of midnight blue and burgundy with silver accents were used. Ditching too much of red or dark navy blue which the designer has used in the past, there were hues of green, light blue and gold.
Varma said the idea was to create beautiful clothing, not necessarily only traditional as people today are more open about fashion and are addressing and talking about it.
Amara is the name of Suneet’s 2019 Couture Collection. “India has a century-old love affair with couture or made to measure for pleasure. There is no denying the luxurious indulgence of precious finery, the magical beauty of one-off embellished wedding attire and the sparkle of personalized jewels that are made to match with it,” says Suneet.
